Hands-on training and competency assessment enhance engineer skills and help support increased operational performance of assets

ABERDEEN, SCOTLAND (February 8, 2017) -- Emerson, a leading global provider of automation technology and engineering services, has opened new education facilities at its Solutions Center in Aberdeen. The expansion provides for a range of training courses and competency assessment programs, enabling engineers and technicians to enhance the automation technology skills required to maximize the operational performance of the assets on which they work.

"North Sea operators are increasingly looking to achieve more from existing assets, and by upskilling their workers it is possible to maximize the potential of installed automation technology and create operational performance improvements,” said Mark Boyes, business director, Scotland, Emerson Automation Solutions. “Our new education facilities in Aberdeen provide training that will help engineers and technicians working in the industry maintain and enhance the skillsets needed to drive long-term efficiency improvements today and in the future."

Emerson Automation Solutions has a portfolio of products installed across the oil and gas industry and a matching portfolio of training courses combining product training with the principles and methodologies required to work on an integrated process system. Gaining the greatest advantage with today's integrated measurement, control and safety systems requires the most up-to-date skills. Emerson's Educational Services helps shorten the learning curve and keep skills tuned so customers can operate their plants most efficiently.

Training and competency assessments will focus on the installation, operation and maintenance of automation technology. The facilities include a live liquid flow loop - the first of its kind in the UK - which has three metering streams that can be run in a number of different configurations. This enables training in all aspects of fiscal measurement.

Emerson’s training enables operators to assess the competency of their workers in an onshore environment. Replicating real working conditions in this way makes the training much safer and more cost-effective.

The Solutions Center is accredited for delivering the level 3 Scottish Vocational Qualification (SVQ) in measurement processes and for delivering a number of courses and tests to ECITB standards.

To launch the education facilities, Emerson held the first of three open days on the 7th of February, giving guided tours to customers and industry experts. Visitors were informed about the wide range of flexible assessments and customized training available, which includes e-learning, virtual, and instructor-led hands-on courses.
